if your recycle paper then use it to make containers would that be disgusting and good if it has ink and paint or other things in it.

it means like can you recycle used paper to make containers and other pages of things. is there another way to do that and it could be like a craft project.

If you chekc out Pinterest, you will see that there are loads of paper recycked projects, mostly, paper weaving. You can make baskets, hewelry boxes and other types of containers. You can spary it witha sealer and stain it and then cover it varnish. check it out.

Recycled paper can be used in paper mâché projects. It is not disgusting, unless of course you use toilet paper.....that could be disgusting.

Toilet paper itself isn't disgusting i i is new and unused. But I doubt ypou can make anything with it as it is made to disolve in liquid.

Actually, you can make a paper mâché clay using toilet paper and drywall mud.

Just go on Youtube. One of my favorite crafts to do is above in the video with old papers. I use old magazines for this but any paper is fine.

Try rolling from long straight edge to long straight edge. Tubes will stay the same width all the way along.
And I use an old knitting needle to roll mine.
If you use newspaper you can paint with acrylic paint after.
I've just made some bowls from Xmas wrapping.

Please post pictures of your newspaper bowls, Wanderer. I'd love to see them.
